something has gone horribly wrong 8-p

Bruce and Katharine Cornwell are primarily known for a series of remarkable animated films on the subject of geometry. Created on the Tektronics 4051 Graphics Terminal, they are brilliant short films, tracing Klee-like geometric shapes to intriguing music, including the memorable 'Bach meets Third Steam Jazz' musical score in ‘Congruent Triangles.’ In this melding of art and science, the Cornwells create a quasi-hypnotic take on a mathematical construct.

Subject: Boringly beautiful
The first part isn't that interesting to me, however the ending, which starts at 5:11 is absolutely amazing. I'm going to go watch that again, it's that cool.

Subject: Love it
Nothing to add beyond the previous reviews, just wanted to bulk up the review score for a dandy film. I enjoyed it for art, I think you need to already know the ideas to figure them out from the film. Maybe it's supposed to be the treat after the lecture?

Subject: Wow!!
Gorgeous film! Love the ending especially; the motion is fantastic. Too bad they don't show stuff like this to kids these days. Heck, too bad kids don't have the attention span for this stuff anymore :P

Subject: Perfection
This film starts off with an intriguingly dorky feel, but the music sets a nice mood. By the end, it becomes absolutely sublime.

Subject: Are you congruent?
I love congruent triangles! The music is pretty snappy too.
